    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    i believe it is 2.4lts for the 6speed F40 gearbox.. the oil is 75w-90 semi synthetic (about £9.96 a litre) or Castrol SMX fully synthetic (£12.99 per litre at Halfrauds)

    Will be doing this very same job this weekend and was looking into it today.. Most recommend changing the drain plug but some have re-used them, they are only a £2.75+vat from the stealer P/N 11092271

    gear oil from VX is £4.75 per litre, could not get specifics of it as the vx parts guy was a flammin muppet..

    well some say it does.. I am about to do it, as i want to see if it resolves a noisey gear change.. When i did it on my Supra it made a world of difference, but the synchros were a bit shagged in that one. I am going to be using fully synthetic SMX all my local stores have sold out, i have 2 litres just need another one to start the job... In theory gearbox oil is supposed ot last the life of the car/engine but we know that the 3.2 litres they left the factory with is now wrong and 2.4litres is recommended. So in the process of changing and doing a one off job why not put in better stuff and see what you get after....

    HY
    i recomend to not to change your oil cause i have very big problems at the moment cuz of it. If you are not taxi car, dont change it it will ruin your gearbox. I was told so, that gearbox oil is lifetime, and they do not change whole amount, they change only from one chamber. The rest (major part) remains in gearbox.
    If u have some super mechanic let him change you the filter inside the gearbox and then change the whole amount.
    I have a problem cuz my signum not shifts right cuz oil mixed (old and new) and viscozity is making a trouble now.
